TRANSFER: PSG TAKE DECISION ON BARCELONA’S LATEST OFFER FOR NEYMAR
Paris Saint-Germain, PSG, will reject a loan-to-buy offer by Barcelona for star forward, Neymar, reports ESPN.
While PSG are ready to let Neymar leave, they want at least the €222million, they paid to bring him to the club recouped.
Even if Barca agreed to pay that amount next year after a loan, the Ligue 1 champions do not believe they would make the payment in a lump sum, which is another sticking point.
PSG manager, Thomas Tuchel has already said Neymar will not leave the club this summer, except they sign a replacement.
Neymar was once again missing as his team lost 2-1 to Rennes in their first away game in Ligue 1 this season.
The 27-year-old attacker has been recovering from an ankle injury that has ruled him out of action since early June.

EPL: ARSENAL OWNERS SET PREMIER LEAGUE TITLE TARGET FOR UNAI EMERY
Josh Kroenke, has said that the club is aiming to win the Premier League in the coming years.
The Gunners finished in fifth place last term under Unai Emery, 28 points behind champions Manchester City.
The club has not won the title since 2004, when the Invincibles claimed it.
Josh, who is the deputy chairman of Arsenal owners Kroenke Sports and Entertainment (KSE), told BBC Sports: “Our ambitions are the same as the fans.
“We want to win and we want to win as much and as often as possible. And doing it a fun way, where they’re seeing some really entertaining football as well. I think we’ve got the group to do it.
“We have the highest of ambitions. In North America, we are trying to win. The [Los Angeles] Rams were in the Super Bowl last year. I can only imagine what a Champions League final is like after being over in Baku.
“There are six great clubs in the Premier League and unfortunately only four [Champions League] spots that are guaranteed. The economics involved – to be able to reinvest back into the club, attract different players who only want Champions League football… our goal is to get back and to win the Premier League.”
Been quiet for a little while. My shin splints took a turn for the worse so i had to take a break from my pre-season to focus on my recovery. Currently working on getting fit again and also stronger at the gym 💪l
